A magnificent example of a large and weighted 41/2 inch Jaques presentation chess set. The historic Burnham Beeches Golf Club was founded in 1891. Burnham Beeches is a famous beauty spot located to the west of London, in the county of Buckinghamshire. The brass carrying handles on the side of the set are unusual and were probably a special commission.
